Blackjack is a card game which is frequently played for money. The player attempts to beat the dealer, either by having a total higher than the dealer's without going over 21, or if the dealer "busts" by going over 21. If the player has a total of 21 with the two cards initially dealt to him, it is called a blackjack, which pays 150% of the bet, whereas other wins only pays 100% of the bet.
